The Comanche was indeed the last ship ever to bring coal to Hunterston to be unloaded, she was the second and last ship to c...

We brought her into Belfast with 11m draft.

I could be wrong but 11m is normal draft for coal ships coming into Belfast, could she be bound for Hunterston with a part cargo?
